Covid restrictions have been lifted and your Elks lodge is in full swing. Recently The Members Appreciation Picnic in June was a big hit. Also. we had a charity Bar Bingo in memory of Barbara “Barb” Barber. We collected a total of $750.00 and also had an anonymous donation of $250 to bring the total to $1,000., which our lodge sent to the American Cancer Society in Barb’s memory/honor.
Thank you to everyone who donated to the Food Bank! For August and September, we will be collecting donations for the SPCA of Anne Arundel County.
In August, we will have “Name That Tune” on the 6th, “Show me the Money” on 2nd and 4th Tuesday nights, "Bar Bingo" on 2nd and 4th Fridays, "Hand Dancing" on the 20th and a "Shrimp and Bull Roast" on Saturday, August 21st and "Hand Dancing on the 20th.
The House Committee can always use your help either for nightly dinners or special events. Regardless of the how much or little you can help; your time is greatly appreciated. Please contact Carol Riggins or myself.
I have just returned from the Elks National Convention in Tampa, that I attended with my Loyal Knight, Julie Gill. I must say how honored we were to be able to attend. There was much excitement since the convention was cancelled last year due to Covid . The Elks Pearl Harbor Fund Campaign reported that Elks nationally gave $514,971.78 to improve the outreach of the Pearl Harbor National Memorial.
At the convention, our Annapolis, Maryland Elks lodge 622 website and the State MD, DE,& DC website were recognized as a 5 star websites.
Special recognition goes to Mark Walp-PER and Jim McNally-Lodge Manager. Because of these two, our lodge received a new roof at no cost. Please join me in giving them both a big THANK YOU when you see them next!
For September, Joanne Schneck is the Elk Volunteer of the Month. She is always in the kitchen behind the scenes spinning circles around the rest of us, expediting and delivering food on both Monday and Wednesday nights for the past 2 years. She also volunteers on busy nights when her schedule allows.
I hope this message finds you all well and enjoying the summer...........
